MBA for Professionals Curriculum

The Willamette MBA for Professionals features a nine-course curriculum, designed to support working and developing managers. Beginning with cohorts entering in Fall 2019, students will be able to choose three elective courses, a full quarter of their curriculum, allowing them to add depth in selected areas of interest. Students will also have the option to select elective coursework from the new Data Science for Professionals program.

The curriculum is delivered through a proven learning model that emphasizes learning by doing and the immediate application of new knowledge. Willamette's respected and recognized faculty understand the unique needs of working professionals and provide a learning experience focused on individual outcomes and success.

MBA Candidates progress through the integrated curriculum in small cohorts, offering a unique opportunity to develop relationships, learn from diverse experiences and approaches, and benefit from a built-in support network. The program is designed to be completed as two courses per semester on two weeknights per week. All MBA for Professionals' courses are delivered 6:00pm to 10:00pm.
